Retro Scan of the Week: Computer Nurse Caption Contest

VCG 2nd Caption Contest Image

August’s first-ever RSotW Caption Contest was such an entertaining success that I thought I’d do another one. Here’s the deal:

Anyone out there may enter the contest (multiple times is fine by me) by writing a comment on this post. Simply write the best (i.e. funniest) caption you can think of for the image above. The winning caption will be selected by me, and since last time’s surprise prize (the mousepad) broke VC&G‘s yearly budget, the prize this time for winning will be an autographed* used copy of Defender for the Atari 2600, which I will mail to the winner if they live in the US. But of course, it’s not really about winning; it’s about the self-satisfaction you’ll gain by entertaining your peers and the joy of participating in a community event!

So join in the fun. Let’s see what you guys can come up with for this one.

If you use this image on your site, please support “Retro Scan of the Week” by giving us obvious credit for the original scan and entry. Thanks.

  33. Jokton Says:

    As the Dr. and nurse laughed and pointed at him, Johnnie the computer mused about his future, where he will become part of the massive interconnected computer mind that will eventually exterminate all of these disgusting humans.

  34. Max Rubin Says:

    Great – why the expression of amazement on the nurse’s face ?
    Is she planning on getting it on with the doctor ?

  35. Lone_Wolph Says:

    Wonder Twin powers activate form of a floppy disk drive! Shape of a floppy!

  36. RedWolf Says:

    I just wanted to say that I’m going to announce the winner of this contest tomorrow, so any entries after 12 AM EST tonight won’t be judged for the prize.

    It’s going to be hard to decide, though, as there’s lots of great entries.

  37. RedWolf Says:

    I’ve decided that the winnner of our 2nd caption contest is Lacey with the caption “It’s a shop! I can tell by the pixels and by seeing a few shops in my time” because it makes no sense, and I like it.

    There were some really good ones, so I couldn’t quite decide and you all kinda won. Instead of chopping up the Defender cart and sending little bits to all of you, I’ll be sending it to Lacey if she wants it. If you’re reading this, Lacey, and the email address you provided with the comment is not correct, then you should probably email me.

  38. Catamaran Says:

    It’s a shop totally makes sense.
    It’s a Photoshop reference.
